NEW MILLS TOR


The secret crag of Western Grit, set in a deep gloomy gorge right bang in the centre of New Mills. The cliff is witheringly steep, and surprisingly tall for grit. The rock is a rather soft and sandy gritstone, not the well-weathered stone you might be used to. These various factors all add up make the routes here intimidating and pumpy propositions.
